Orange diamonds

Basic facts

Orange Diamonds usually come in many color intensities and in color combinations. You can choose from the vivid yellowish orange to the deep brown orange and hues go into brown, orange or pinkish. Pure orange diamonds are rare and rather expensive. If the stone color is less than 25% orange it will be called “orangy” referring it as secondary color. Most orange diamonds are found in various Sub-Saharan African countries.

The color in orange diamonds is caused by structural irregularities in combination with the presence of trace elements like nitrogen. In this arrangement they absorb blue light, thus producing an orange appearance.

Investing in natural fancy colored orange diamonds

The cost and desirability of orange diamonds depends largely on the intensity of their hue. The more pure the orange, the more expensive the diamond and more interesting to investors. Orange diamonds also look beautiful and luxurious in jewelry, when combined with white diamonds, so why not buy a pure orange diamond as an investment and wear it in a high class jewel, while over time it will only increase in value.

Famous orange diamonds

There is only one really big orange diamond that really stands out. It is referred to as ‘The Orange’. A pear shaped 14.82ct, fancy vivid diamond with VS1 quality which was sold at Christie’s for 35.5 million US dollars.

Second in line comes another renowned fancy vivid orange diamond, the 5.54 carat “Pumpkin”, which was worn by Halle Berry at the 2002 Academy Awards. It has its name because it was bought one day before Halloween.
